Name: Isaac Werner
Location: Parker, Colorado
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I got interested in global issues through my love for domestic politics. As I began learning more and more about the issues that are affecting us both domestically and abroad, I discovered that the two aspects of politics went more hand-in-hand then I had recently thought. Overall, I became interested in global issues because what happens beyond our borders affects us as well, and we have the privilege of having resources at our disposal to positively affect global issues.


Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because I believe that what is done overseas can be brought back to our own country. Also, I live by the mentality of, “If I don’t do it, who will?”


Any interesting tidbits to share?
Ever since I was young, I have always had a passion for advocacy. Now, as I grow older, I want to spend my life making advocacy a primary part; however, I still make time to be creative. In my free time, I am an avid painter, writer, poet, and dog lover!


My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. $75: Cook dinner or meal of your choice.
  2. $150: Commissioned art piece, canvas sizing and art medium of your choosing.
  3. $175: Dinner, art piece, and baby/dog-sitting day of your choosing.
